8 or 9 of our favorite albums of 2020

“Best of” lists are exhausting and stressful when it’s not your full-time job (eg holy shit there was a new Avalanches album this year???). And, folks, we say a lot of things “are Trash Garbage”, but that ain’t Trash Garbage. Here are some albums that came out in 2020 which resonated with Sammie and Matthew a lot that you probably have already heard about.
